Audible to Lay Off 5 Percent of Employees
On Thursday, Audible announced to employees that it would eliminate 5 percent of its workforce. The company employs an estimated 1,500 to 2,000 staffers worldwide, so this move will likely impact approximately 100 people. The company declined to confirm which departments are affected.
In a memo to staff, provided to PL by an Audible spokesperson, CEO Bob Carrigan noted that the company had a "strong year" in 2023 and "business is in good shape." "However, to position us for continued success in the coming year and into the future, given the increasingly challenging landscape we face, we have to take this difficult decision now."
He continued, "Getting leaner and more efficient is the way we will need to operate now—and in the foreseeable future—in order to continue delivering best-in-class audio storytelling to our customers around the world."

From an exciting all-female, all-Thai team, Noodles, Rice, and Everything Spice combines easy-to-follow comic book panels with pops of vibrant food photography to perfectly capture the bright, colorful flavors and ingredients that are crucial to Thai cuisine.

An approachable, fun comic book cookbook tour of Thai culture and cuisine, Noodles, Rice, and Everything Spice showcases real Thai food with 50 recipes and stories from the country’s distinct culinary regions.

Journey to the northern Lanna region and dine “khan tok”–style with small bowls of chile dips, curries, sticky rice, and vegetables on a gilded pedestal tray for sharing; sit cross-legged on a bamboo mat around a spread of tangy salads and grilled meats in the northeast Isaan region; roam the bustling markets of central Bangkok for iconic street food treats; and lounge on a beach in southern Thailand with dangerously spicy seafood.

Seven Days took a sweeping look into Stephen P. Kiernan's latest novel, "The Glass Chateau."

The acclaimed novel follows Asher, a Jewish boot maker turned assassin for the French Resistance, who after the war, finds refuge and purpose in a centuries-old atelier, where master glassmakers and glassblowers have been commissioned by the Catholic church to restore the once-great stained glass windows of a bombed-out cathedral.

Kiernan dedicated more than two years to researching the historical material, including hours spent learning the art of glassblowing in a local Burlington studio.

Glass is ubiquitous in our lives — in our homes, cars and electronic devices — though it's usually something we look through rather than gaze...

"The difference between the greatest players and the ones who are just good enough has been scrutinized for decades. There are theories and philosophies, books and dissertations written on the topic."

"One thread inarguably connects all these high performers, though, and that is that the greatest competitors are true believers in the Religion of Sports."

Gotham Chopra writes about Tom Brady and Wayne Gretzky, as he explores what separates the greats from all the rest.

His book, Religion of Sports, released last month with Atria.

Two of the greatest athletes of all time pushed themselves to be the best by dedicating themselves fully to their sports.

"Echoing Fannie Lou Hamer’s call to “wake up” to the urgency of addressing the unfinished business of “building democracy,” Blain brings together an impressive roster of Black women to discuss some of the most divisive issues facing us today."

"Among other topics, the contributors address reproductive and voting rights, racial equity in health care, equal pay, economic justice, and disability and LGBTQ+ rights."

Read the Kirkus Reviews post about Keisha N. Blain, PhD's "Wake Up America."

Black women leaders demonstrate how we can create “an inclusive and multiracial democracy.”

"First off, if there is a book cover featuring a picture of a guy wearing a giant flowing cape, we’re buying it."

"And when that guy is Lando Calrissian, we’re savoring it."

So excited to see Billy Dee Williams' upcoming memoir, "What Have We Here?" on Entertainment Weekly's list of 38 books they're excited to read in 2024.

"In his memoir, Billy Dee Williams recounts his prolific career, starring in such cultural touchstones as Brian’s Song and the original Star Wars trilogy. How can anyone resist a date with the smoothest customer this side of Cloud City? Answer: They can’t."
